MIT Playful Journey Lab and Maker Ed (2019). Beyond Rubrics: Moving towards embedded assessment in maker education.
Available at https://makered.org/beyondrubrics/
While there are many benefits of making and makerspaces, one of the greatest challenges of implementing making in K–12 schools is the question of how to assess collaborative, cross-disciplinary, and iterative making practices and outcomes. Many existing assessment tools for maker-centered classrooms focus on the final project or a portfolio. The Beyond Rubrics Toolkit has embedded tools to capture evidence of the process of making. This toolkit is our first attempt at capturing qualitative and quantitative evidence during the process of making.
